Happy that sweet was not overlooked...

Teen readers are bombarded by adult messaging and there are many times when I have questioned whether a teen read was a good "fit" for my own teenager.  I am pleasantly surprised that a few books that didn't have the typical teen "wow" factor are in the running.  I think messages of kindness and celebration of differences are important for teen literature and so my vote is Counting by 7's.
